Notre Dame vs. Saint Chapelle

This was a draw. Both of these were really cool. The stained glass in Saint Chapelle was breathtaking, and the views from the top of Notre Dame and just its overall history was awesome.

And Saint Chapelle: Exterior shots of this one were difficult because it's wedged in between a bunch of government buildings.


  1. Sainte Chapelle HANDS DOWN. Of course, I didn't even go up Notre Dame because I was only there for a few days too and it wasn't on the top of my list, but I was DYING to see Sainte Chapelle from the second I saw it in my humanities book. And I think it's AMAZING. I could live there.
    I'm so glad you went there because it's one of my favorite places in Paris and seeing your pictures makes me want to cry. Now I sound like a dweeb.

  2. I wasn't a fan of all the cathedrals we learned about. However, I came up with a compromise- Although, the interior is breathtaking, Notre Dame for Exterior. And Saint Chapelle for interior. I goggled the exterior-- Not too appealing.
